Mireille Mathieu

Artist: Mireille Mathieu
LP: Olympia
Song: "Monsieur Lilas"
[ listen ]

They say that March comes in like a lion and then goes out like a lamb. But in Seattle this year, March came in more like a mongoose, is currently behaving a lot like a Yorkshire Terrier, and seems likely to go out like a kangaroo. I've been weeding through my French-language albums these past few weeks and turned up this terrific 1969 LP from Mireille Mathieu. You can read all about this passionately French singer on Wikipedia here.
